Sovereign Plaza

Sovereign Plaza is the main service and data center for Sovereign Bank and is located in the heart of downtown Reading, Pennsylvania.

The fa├žade consists of brick spandrel panels, EIFS banding and columns, and a curved curtain wall system. Exterior architectural lighting highlights the building’s prominent features.

A full-building emergency back-up power system allows the entire facility to operate during an unexpected power outage. The building’s 2,300 square foot data center is fully integrated with the building control center and is protected by an FE-25 Clean Agent Fire Protection system and state of the art security system.
